I'm Susan Harvey, or Susan Purcell, depending on who I'm with, where I am, and what I'm writing.
I'm a linguist in both senses of the word. I speak and write on English linguistics and I know other languages - French, German and Russian, in my case.
I'm the author of several books, including BBC Talk French Grammar, The Kingfisher Illustrated Pocket Dictionary and The Kingfisher Illustrated Pocket Thesaurus. I'm co-editor of The Puzzler Crossword Solver's Dictionary. I live in Guildford, Surrey.
You can contact me on a googlemail.com email account. The first part is virtuallinguist, all one word.
